The intent of Challenges in (Re)designing EdD Programs: Supporting Change with Learning Cases is to provide faculty, who are seeking to redesign their EdD programs into professional practice doctorate, with case examples that describe common challenges and pitfalls encountered during the redesign process. Each of the cases portrays real situations generated from case study research conducted by the chapter authors. Each case is comprised of three parts: a) a contextual overview of the challenge or problem, b) case study notes that ground the challenge or problem in literature and provide deeper understanding of the issues at hand, and c) a set of discussion questions that will guide faculty in conversation about similar issues they may face in their own program redesign. This volume is an invaluable resource for program leaders, faculty, and graduate students involved in EdD programs.

“Timely, innovative, and infused with real-world cases from EdD faculty members’ practices, this book is a must-read for all faculty whose daily lives revolve around supporting students in professional doctoral programs. The cases are carefully selected and provide a unique contribution toward developing and re-designing programs that prepare educational leaders. The novelty of the case-study learning approach for faculty development makes the book an invaluable tool every professional doctoral program needs!”

Veselina Lambrev, EdD, University of South Florida

“Jill Perry has done it! She and the authors in this fantastic and timely edited text have literally captured what has been my conundrum for decades within doctoral education: how to make plain, in language, design and execution with students and faculty, the distinction between the PhD and practice doctorate in education. For so long we have relied on our own experience and sophisticated professional alchemy to design EdD programs. Challenges in (Re)designing EdD Programs provides practice-based evidence on how to educate educators to effectively make the change we need to see in our schools, districts and communities.”

Noel Anderson, PhD, Steinhardt School of Education, Culture and Human Development, New York University

“Each of the case studies in this book immerse readers into real and relevant tensions, opportunities, challenges, and complexities inherent in the (re)design of EdD programs. Education faculty working with scholar practitioners will appreciate the transparency and practicality of cases involving justice and equity-oriented frameworks, research preparation curriculum, and dissertation-in-practice experiences. This collection of cases invites readers to think, question, and act in their unique contexts and to embrace the messy process of working toward critical and sustained professional and programmatic change.”

Gage R. Jeter, PhD, Coordinator of the University of Florida’s Teachers, Schools, and Society EdD Program

“If you are ready to achieve authentic (re)design of your Ed.D. program, then this timely resource will help you navigate the landscape. In this important companion to Dr. Perry and her colleagues’ other books, we learn the roadmap for reimagining the Ed.D. by use of successful cases—examples of strong, existing examples and models. Each chapter provides us with principles on issues critical in Ed.D. programs: addressing diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility; the role of research in Ed.D. preparation; addressing multiple Ed.D. programs in one institution; the Ed.D.’s integration into the broader institutional fabric; and supporting a group dissertation model. Whether a professor, leader of Ed.D. programs, or leader of a school/college of education, you will benefit from wisdom tailored for your needs and your roles and responsibilities. Eminently practical, Dr. Perry and her colleagues provide us with the structured approaches to ensure our practitioners in Ed.D. programs are the beneficiaries of top-flight, data- and equity-driven educational preparation.”

Elizabeth C. Orozco Reilly, Dean and Professor, School of Education California State University, Channel Islands

“Perry’s Challenges in (Re)designing EdD Programs: Supporting Change with Learning Cases offers cases detailing the redesign processes at various institutions to support EdD programs in enacting the CPED Guiding Principles. Authors provide faculty and educational leaders real-world examples to emulate (or challenges to avoid) when navigating the complex process of program redesign. Those involved in the program redesign process—from faculty to chairs to deans—will find tremendous value in learning about the program development process as well as the change management necessary for successful implementation and institutionalization of program reforms.”

Lesley F. Leach, Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs and Development Delegate, Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate, Professor of Educational Research, Tarleton State University

“In Challenges in (Re)designing EdD Programs: Supporting Change with Learning Cases Perry crafts a text which helps educational professionals and educator preparation programs succinctly understand the process necessary to effectively frame, create, or re-vision Education Doctorate programs. Perry’s work explains, persuades, and exemplifies what an Ed.D. program should embody. By infusing learning cases as a means of facilitating professional learning she guides members of the academy through the process of developing programs capable of producing scholar practitioners skilled in navigating both the academic and professional realms which many students find themselves positioned. I highly recommend this book.”

Reginald D. Wilkerson, Assistant Professor, William & Mary – School of Education
